Turbo YJ (Build Thread)

Yet another Turbo Charging thread...
But this one will be updated as I go...

What I want to do..
1) Turbocharge my 4.0
2) Move the battery and fusebox to the trunk (or somewhere else)
3) Replace the rear main crankshaft seal.
4) Give step by step help to anyone who wants to turbo charge.

Questions I have.
1) Are there any premade exhaust and down pipe that goes to the passenger side?
2) Piggyback ECU or not worry
3) Fuel injectors and FPC


Photos will follow...

Help and opinion are welcomed!

Would this be more cost effective than doing a V8 swap? Currently a 2.5.
I have always liked the turbo efficiency. But really know nothing than the rudimentary details.
I will fallow this build.

Keep your boogger hook off the bang button!

I Thought about it for a while then I found a guy who traded a brand new turbo for some lights. The only expensive part now is probably the exhaust and intake.

So far, I have removed the battery mount, Im planning to move the fuse box towards the bottom of the fender and the battery to the trunk. Tomorrow hopefully I can start wiring everything back up.

So to do a return line on the turbo you have to take off the oil pan to drill a hole...
Mine is stuck on.. so after a week of working on it, im taking off the front axle to make more space to work on the front of the pan...
should be done by tonight hopefully but we can all dream..
